What I see

So jumping in on the Facebook ‘how have you aged’ challenge here, and reflecting on the very first photo I chose in 2007 to launch myself into the Facebook world verses the photo I now have representing me as my profile image today.   My goodness… where do I start? So for one, let’s jump right on into the perspective …

8 states

I don’t know if you follow me on social media or not (let me take this opportunity to suggest that you SHOULD and you can find links right on over on the right margin of this blog page) but if you do, you might have noticed that we have been on somewhat of a amazing race across this great country! …

The house that God will build

So I don’t care much for material things. I don’t like to spend more than $50 on jeans and I wear hand me downs on the regular without shame. I shop at Target and on Facebook marketplace. I wear Tiffany’s only because it’s been gifted to me. I love it, don’t get me wrong, but I’d never buy it. I …

When the storm comes…

I started homeschooling today! Yes, I realize that a random Sunday in the middle of the summer is a fairly strange day to start homeschooling your kids, but hey, it’s the first of the month so it felt fitting in my OCD brain somehow.

School house rocked

Two significant things happened today.

Luckily, this is a small town. I opened up the two boxes that have been sitting in my …

Hurry up and slow down

9 years

9 years ago today, I said yes. No, not to getting married, but I guess you could say that I was saying yes to ‘happily ever after…’ On March 8, 2009, I nervously took a step into entrepreneurship. I didn’t know that’s exactly what I was doing at the time, but I could tell that I was on the verge …

Civil War

Be honest, you totally clicked on this because it’s Valentine’s day and you thought I was being clever with my title and referring to a ‘civil war’ in my relationship. Sorry to disappoint! Today I’m writing about the actual Civil War. But I’m glad you’re here! As I mentioned in my blog, Shalom Family, while my mom and Papa Scott …
